I have given up hope of the usual display of hydrangea colors this year, because of the freeze. One bush is dead, and others show a very weak growth from the roots. The one that I call the "old fashion" one is hardier and is growing better. It is about 45 years old, and was started for me by two brothers, who laid a limb from Mom's bush, on the ground, and let it root. They may never grow back to their former beauty, but I have some pictures and many good memories.

Talk about time flying! It is May already, and the month for decorations. Next Sunday is Bethlehem, Bethesda, Vineyard.

As promised, I also remind you now, of the 23rd annual Cincinnati reunion, on Saturday, May 26, from 1 to 4 p.m. They ask you to bring photos of family members who served in the Armed Forces.

The letters are out, reminding all Lincoln alumni of the reunion on Sunday, July 15, from 2 to 5 p.m. Yes, it will be here before we know it. Pass the word along any way you can.

While bemoaning the loss of some flowers. I thought of this "keeper."

"I asked God for a bunch of fresh flowers, but instead He gave me an ugly thorn cactus.

I asked Him for some beautiful butterflies: He gave me many ugly worms.

I was threatened, I was disappointed, I mourned.

But, after many days, suddenly I saw a cactus bloom with beautiful flowers, and those worms became beautiful butterflies, flying in the wind.

God's way is the best way."
